I have no idea what the "Kowaraou's Origins" thread is about any more (in 
fact, I have no idea what most of these threads are supposed to be about; 
the subjects seem to rarely bare resemblance to the contents), so I'm just 
going to quickly address something OMF asked about, under the assumption it 
was left hanging.

The original storyboard (printed in NGE Storyboard Collection 4) says
"Mysterious, beautiful boy" and "(The last angel)".

I can't say I can check those first-hand, but the cut-by-cut breakdown of
the OP in Newtype Film Book 1 certainly includes the cut. To my knowledge,
the book was put out after TV broadcast and before VHS release (hence part
of the incentive for Japanese consumers to buy them).
